Cozy Cabin

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a no-line watercoloured card using a beautiful winter scene from Penny Black (Cozy Cabin).

I started by stamping the image onto Hot Press watercolour paper in Antique Linen distress ink (very light).  Then used a variety of other distress ink colours to watercolour the image and add a light blue to the sky.  Finished the card by using white acrylic paint to add snow to the trees, cabin and splattered over the whole card.  The sentiment (Snowflake Season by Penny Black) is stamped in brown.

We have had a lot of snow over the past week.
Jessie has enjoyed hopping through the deep snow and as always,
finding the biggest stick she can carry makes her happy.

Gorgeous winter scene, beautifully watercoloured.
Love your photo of Jessie in the snow ...... she's so adorable.
I wish we had snow. There's been a little bit on the mountain but it didn't last very long. Have a lovely weekend ...... stay warm and cosy xx

LOVE your cozy snow covered watercolored cabin and trees, Lolly. Adding swiped white acrylic brush strokes to your trees was genius, my friend. I must check out the beautiful stamp set. TFS and always inspiring me:-) The photo of Jessie playing in the snow and finding a big stick is so cute. TFS Love and Hugs..Nancy

If you had to be out in the snow, this is the place to go to. A beautifully water colored cozy cabin with a fire in the fireplace. Jessie looks so pleased with her find.

When I saw this winter scene, I was really delighted! It looks so amazing and the trees with a layer of white acrylic give the impression that it is a large format oil painting. What an amazing card, Loll !!
Hugs,
